Anonymous asked: What do you think of the Wii U and how Nintendo is doing at the moment? Do you think there's anything that they need to change?

Yes, they need to change everything. Their stock price is tanking, 3DS is the only thing that is doing well at Nintendo right now but it’s still not enough to save them. I love Nintendo and have for years but as a realist I see that they are distant 5th in the console market right now with 360s and PS3s having more 3rd party support than the Wii U with main 3rd party support going towards current gen (PS4 / XB1) development. I don’t see a way the WiiU can compete with the PS4 and XboxOne at this point. They would have to do something magical to attract the support of 3rd party developers which they desperately need to make the system viable again. Maybe they can, but based on the confirmed release dates of games coming out for WiiU this year, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen soon.

Personally, I’m considering putting at least one of the two secret Team Meat games on PS4…Sony seems to be doing the best right now and have the best developer support of the 3 with Microsoft being second. My bias against Microsoft and their bias against Team Meat prevents an XB1 release, but that could change in the future. I’m open to it though not counting on or actively pursuing it. As for the WiiU, I can’t justify the work at this time. It would not be a financially smart thing to do.
